I would like to make the Master Markup very easy to find. It's actually 
not too hard at the moment. However, consider the following:

Someone starts to use the wiki and looks through the Basic Markup 
section and can't find what they want. Now if you are like me you would 
think, "If I can just scan through a list of all the markups, I should 
be able to work out which is the one I want." If there isn't a link on 
the Basic Markup page to the full list, I would probably try typing 
something in the Search Box. The question is what do I type?

So, it might be worth embedding some sort of meta tag of likely search 
words in the Master Markup page that would be found by a search.

Also, pages that are a subset of some bigger picture, should have a very 
obvious link to the comprehensive version.
